Obituary

Gloria Frances DeLucia Rotondo, 95, of Langhorne, PA, and Sayreville, NJ, passed away on Thursday, April 29, 2021.

Gloria was born on October 9, 1925 to Alexander DeLucia and Rose Izzo in Brooklyn, New York. She was baptized at St. Catherine of Alexandria Church in Brooklyn, New York and married in the same church to Joseph S. Rotondo on July 1, 1950. Gloria and Joseph had two children, Robert J. Rotondo and Joseph J. Rotondo.

From a young age, Gloria loved to sing and dance, and later as a young adult she performed with jazz trios and sang on the radio in New York City. She continued to sing throughout her life bringing much joy and entertainment to numerous family gatherings.

She set aside her career to be a mother and care for her family, which was her greatest joy. She was a wonderful cook and entertainer and loved to spend time with her beloved grandchildren. She was incredibly stylish and unique and left an impression on everyone she met.

Gloria was predeceased by her husband, Joseph S. Rotondo, and her brother, Alexander DeLucia. She is survived by her sisters, Patricia Rissi and Geraldine Rumpolo, her son Robert J. Rotondo and his wife Kimberly and their children Alexander and Olivia Rose, and her son Joseph J. Rotondo and his wife Diane and their children Victoria and Natalie.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a graveside service on Tuesday, May 4 at 1pm at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 100 Chapel Road, Red Bank, NJ 07701. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Heart Association in Gloria's memory.
